Affordable Housing Strategy

Throughout 2020, the City engaged with consultants to perform an Affordable Housing Assessment to analyze the state of affordable housing in Denton. A presentation was given to the City Council on February 2, 2021 to present the findings, and included:

  • Project overview
  • Key findings
  • Affordable housing needs
  • Market value analysis
  • Looking forward: affordable housing tools

The City then initiated Phase 2 of this project to develop an Affordable Housing Strategy and Toolkit. The Draft Affordable Housing Strategy and Toolkit was presented to City Council on December 14, 2021 (ID 21-2406). The presentation reviewed Denton’s Affordable Housing Strategic Toolkit’s five recommended strategies with the activities targeted to deliver housing interventions.

 City Council adopted Denton’s Affordable Housing Strategic Toolkit on February 15, 2022 (ID 22-090).
